Record Collector is Britain’s longest-running rock and pop music monthly. Our motto is “Serious about music”, because we know our readers are totally passionate about what they listen to. You don’t have to be a vinyl freak to love Record Collector. We pride ourselves on bringing you the best features about music, with artist interviews, discographies and all the inside knowledge that only RC can deliver. And it’s not only rock’n’roll: we cover pop, soul, 80s, psychedelia, folk, rockabilly. If it’s good enough, it has a place in RC. The magazine boasts a formidable reviews department in which modern gems nestle alongside classic reissues; we sift the musical treasures from retro rubbish; we tell you what’s happening in the world of music auctions, and there’s all the news that any discerning music fan could want.

Always tries to charge you per issue even when you have a valid subscription

Very annoying for an otherwise great magazine

The App is not stable.

I’ve been an RC subscriber for many years, and I believe I started my digital subscription six or seven years ago. I loved keeping old copies on my iPad, especially for long plane rides. In the last couple years I have had two major subscription issues that had to be corrected, and in the last few months, the app will not hold my library of back issues. It wipes them clean regularly. Full of optimism, I try reloading them, but I have several years of issues to download. And sooner or later, the app will wipe them again.
GREAT MAGAZINE; terrible app.
